State Sen. Malcolm Smith, Spring Valley Mayor Noramie Jasmin and four others are set to be arraigned Tuesday after a federal grand jury handed up its indictment today.
The six facing charges—including Spring Valley Deputy Mayor Joseph Desmaret—are due in White Plains federal court at noon, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
The indictment is essentially a summarized version of the criminal complaint that was unsealed earlier this month. It outlines three separate schemes that all tie in some way to Smith, who prosecutors say tried to bribe his way on the Republican ballot line in the New York City mayor’s race.
Jasmin and Desmaret are accused of selling their votes clearing the way for a land transfer to a phony development company that had been trying to build a community center.
Also charged in the indictment are New York City Councilman Dan Halloran, former Bronx GOP Chairman Jay Savino and former Queens Republican Vice Chair Vincent Tabone.
